In cold days and at winter temperatures, soup is an irreplaceable part of our diet. It heals not only the body but also our soul. Having undergone all the trials of time and thousands of variations and transformations, it still remains one of the most delicious, healthy and obligatory elements present at our table.
In fact, the idea of places where they mainly offer soups doesn’t date back to the last few decades but can be traced back to the 18th century when a French entrepreneur started selling broths on the streets of Paris. Even then, customers welcomed his idea of a delicious, nutritious and at the same time very affordable meal.
The team of the only digital guide under the hills went through a few favorite places for you in order to tell you what you shouldn’t miss and where you can always get a hot nourishing soup.
